October 31, 2007 - Key West, Florida

We went into Key West on Halloween Day, October 31st. 

These are fish hanging around the Schooner Wharf Bar where they feed them:

We think the big one is a tarpon:

A brown pelican at Mallory Square:

The Royal Caribbean cruise ship Sovereign of the Seas was in port:

We had lunch at the Cuban place by Mallory Square, El Meson de Pepe.  The food is good but overpriced due to the location. 

Nice tree along Duval Street:

Some of the famous Key West chickens:

An interesting mail box:

We went back to see more of the fish:

A group was hanging over a spot so we came to see what they were seeing and found a manatee:

See the water dripping off the boat, it is fresh water and the manatee has noticed:

The manatee starts to drink the water:

Our friends who are staying local say many of the boaters will let the manatees drink from the end of a hose if they see them.  It was great to see a manatee and we were glad it was in such clear water.

A photo of the sponge man at Mac's, one of two in town.  We saw these in 2003 also.
